When most people think of the word “flight,” they think of airplanes or wine. Airplane flights transport you somewhere special, and wine flights allow you to sample different tastes in one sitting. Chicago Flights get you a little bit of both.
Flight Chicago offers its guests a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Chicago’s world-famous food scene. Each 3-hour flight visits 3 different restaurants. At each stop, our guests tour the kitchen to get a sense of how things work, and then sit down to sample tastes while engaging in a question-and-answer session with the chef.
Flights run between the hours of 2:30 and 5:30 P.M. when most restaurants are otherwise closed to the public. This schedule offers our guests an intimate look at the daily lives of Chicago’s hottest and most talked about chefs, on their own turf. Is there any better power lunch? Along the way you’ll also meet mixologists, bakers, mongers and other local artisans, and sample some excellent wine, beer and spirit pairings offered by regional outfits.
